I suspect that the photo on the main page (a jumping person with a fat-looking costume and a hat) comes from the work you mention. It is called
"Groosland" and is by the French choreographer Maguy Marin. It was created in 1989, and I remember the Lyon Opera Ballet danced it a few years ago. I didn't see it, most of the reviews found it amusing, while some found it a bit offensive or tasteless. Maguy Marin is quite popular in France; I've only seen a few works by her and didn't like it much.
The rest of the program included Balanchine's "Capriccio" (Rubies), Robbins' "The Cage", and Ashton's "Symphonic Variations": that sounds quite interesting! Pity the Dutch National Ballet never tours to France, they seem to have an interesting repertory...

Lately I've seen Cinderella of the Dutch National Ballet and it was very beautiful.
